Turn your bathroom from bland to grand with windows that beckon natural light and beautiful views.
Bathroom windows can pose a bit of a design dilemma. You want ultimate privacy in the bathroom, but natural light is helpful for most personal grooming tasks.
Choosing the right style for your bathroom windows is not always just down to a matter of taste. When it comes to a room that’s such an integral part of your home, it’s important that you choose a style that not only reflects you, but that’s durable enough to handle everything that comes with the room’s function, such as excess steam and condensation.
Here’s how to make the bathroom more private without sacrificing space or style.
Edgy and versatile, the sturdy, slim-profile frames tap into the current trend for all things industrial. This kind of style allows you to cleverly partition open areas to create different zones, without compromising on light or space.
Frosted glass is an obvious choice for concealment. But to minimize exposure while maximizing connection to the outdoors, leave the upper panes clear and frost the lower third or half of the window.
Let the sun shine in with a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows. These windows offer dramatic views of the bathroom surrounding landscape, where privacy is not a concern.
Transoms are typically accent windows that go above or below a door or larger window. But in a space where privacy is key, a transom window works well as a standalone.
A fixed skylight window above the shower is just what you need to be one with nature. An overhead window retains privacy while bringing in the gorgeous daylight.
By rising up from the floor and continuing across the ceiling, this window manages to provide tantalizing views of the landscape and sky without putting privacy in jeopardy. Creating interesting shadow as the sun moves.

A circular window adds style and light to this bathroom. Its placement on the wall above the bathtub affords privacy yet allows bathers to catch a glimpse of the sky or stars.
The main function of bathroom windows is to be able to ventilate the area while providing acceptable levels of comfort and energy efficiency. In bathrooms with multiple windows, it is important to have at least one window that will open to allow airflow.
This contemporary bathroom has the luxury of a large sliding door and window that open to a balcony. To prevent prying eyes from peering in, a laser-cut screen on the balcony face is punctuated with leaf-like motifs that create a dappled effect.
Louvered glass panels are a great way to create a large window, but are also a means of controlling airflow. If privacy is not an issue, you can flood the interior with natural light via fully transparent louvers while enjoying the cool breezes.
The bathroom is the most personal room in the house. For this reason, it makes sense why homeowners wish to add privacy to this space while also making it more inviting. Whether it’s adding glass blocks to the shower or installing a partition wall between the tub and toilet, hopefully you found the perfect fit.
